    I love the swimsuit idea! But there is NO way I could buy swimsuits for them and be confident they would want to wear them...they all have such different body types! I am so jealous of everyone who has already figured their gifts out! I didn't think it'd be this hard. Is everyone giving their MOH something extra? I feel like I should, partly because I was the MOH for my MOH and she did. And she's coming out to the wedding a week early to help. But one of my other BMs is doing my invites, and another is emceeing our wedding. And another is coming out a week early too, plus another week a few months before the wedding. So I feel like they are all going the extra mile. Do you think the MOH would feel slighted if I didn't give her something extra?

      All my BMs are helping so much and each contributing in different ways. I am doing a little extra for my MOH but it will be more personal..i will probably find a good best friend peom or something and make a frame for it really nice for her. I think if you add something personal that is just between you two she will be more than grateful. Just an idea!

          I was stuck on this too! We ended up having flowers in their room upon arrival at the resort. The resort had a bunch to choose from and they turned out great! Both sets of parents really enjoyed them.

          We also had cards delivered to them the day of wedding and had monogrammed handkerchiefs with our names and wedding date on them that were given to the moms at the wedding. We gave the handkerchiefs to the dads to give to the moms once they sat down at the ceremony.

            So many great ideas!
            For my BM i got lightweight short robes from VS and great fuzzy flip flop slippers, great beach bag, as well as amazing hand painted and pulled glass starfish necklaces and earings.
            As for the GM...FI has no idea...3 weeks to go and no gifts yet!
            He is stressing me out!!

              This is a great thread! For my BM's I found some great satchel's from Prana and will include sunblock, flipflops... and I don't know what else yet. I bought their dresses and paid for the rental house for the week for the wedding party. FI wants to get them something down there... but getting them swim shorts might not be a bad idea. :-)

                  I randomly came across this thread and thought I'd revive it!

                  I bought my girls personalized lounge chair towels from Etsy:

                  They fold up into a tote bag:

                  And I got a different color for each:

                  I also paid for their dresses, necklaces and they're also getting an OOT bag. I have to stop spoiling them!

                      Ok, so were are having a small wedding 15-16 people and no wedding party. Any suggestions on a nice gift for our guest?
                      Also, I really didnt want to lug oot bags down with me do you think it is OK to mail it to my guest a week or two before my wedding and they could bring it down themselves? Or is this cheesy?
